An auto product sold at Aldi is being recalled due to safety concerns.

Walser Asia Pacific is recalling its Auto XS Heated Car Seat Cushions, model number 16478, sold exclusively at the Aldi grocery chain. The seat covers may overheat, causing the fabric to melt.

If the seat cover overheats, it can increase the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant or may result in a vehicle fire.

Walser is including about 41,000 seat covers in its recall announcement.

Walser will work with Aldi to issue a joint press release instructing owners to return the affected seat covers back to an Aldi location for a full refund.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Walser customer service at (800) 222-0999.
